James Bond Documentary to Get U.K. Theatrical Rollout
LONDON – A limited run at British movie theaters for Stevan Riley's documentary Everything or Nothing: The Untold Story of 007 has been secured by the documentary's backers.
Produced by John Battsek (One Day In September) and Simon Chinn (Man on Wire), the documentary focuses on three men with a shared dream – Bond producer Albert R. Broccoli, Harry Saltzman and novelist and creator Ian Fleming.
Backers Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures, Columbia Pictures, Passion Pictures and Red Box Films have struck a deal that will see Sony Pictures Releasing UK release the film on an exclusive basis with Odeon Cinemas in selected locations.
The rollout will coincide with the 50th anniversary of James Bond films on Oct. 5.
The movie is billed as a "thrilling and inspiring narrative behind the longest running film franchise in cinema history" which began in 1962.
With unprecedented access both to the key players involved and to Eon Productions’ extensive archive, the backers claim it is the first time the inside story of the franchise has ever been told on screen in this way.
